NEET2NEET: From Not in Education, Employment or Training to New Employability Empowering Tools

Training Course

15-22 November 2014 | Padova, Italy

Youth unemployment is one of the most relevant challenges in contemporary Europe. How the empowerment strategy within a non formal education approach can support youth employability? Let's find some ways together using especially the Photo-Voice!

Youth unemployment is one of the most relevant challenges in contemporary Europe. The last decades could be characterized by a strong technological change, increasing inter-dependencies among countries all over the world and an ever-changing labour-market with strong demands. Youth transition into an adult autonomous working life has been becoming a longer and complexer issue. Youth employability is directly related to life independence, which plays a central role in other structural social policies, like family policies, for example. All the new documents – Europe 2020 and its flagship – stress on the employability as a key factor for development.
The general approach is to focus on unemployment from a meta-level position: what policy should do, how economy should be ruled etc. The idea of this training course is to make it upside down! How the empowerment strategy within a non formal education approach can support youth employability? What concrete tools do we have as youth workers to develop the competences of the young people we work with? In this TC we will try find answers to these and related questions with an international group of youth workers by:

1. deepening the understanding of employability
2. Exploring how NFE can promote empowerment and how it is linked with youth employability
3. To experiment an empowerment process
4. To learn how to use a concrete tool as photo-voice to support youth employability and to involve the community in this process (photo-voice is a Participatory action and research method by which people create and discuss photographs as a means of catalyzing personal and community change)
5. getting to know the EU funds that can support youth employability

Trainers: Rui Montez and Giulia Mastropirro, european free lance trainers on their 10 project on youth employability; Stefania Nogara, trainer and expert in Photo-Voice

Work in Progress is a no profit organization that aims to give opportunities to youngsters and young adults to improve their key competences, to make mobility experiences in Europe and to contribute to the build up of a society based on respect of diversity. In order to reach this goal, we strongly believe that young people have the necessity not only to be involved in formal trainings, but also to deepen other aspects such as solidarity, interculturality, differences, european citizenship, volunteering and all that subjects which are mostly neglected in the formal training programmes.
Work in Progress has been established by expertise in the field of education and training that have been involved in non formal education since 2005. The organization, established in 2010, is very active hosting beneficiaries of the Leonardo da Vinci Programme, participating in Grundtvig and in many activities of the Youth in Action and now in Erasmus+
